Added DiffLines:

* BizarreAlienBiology: The Yalosians (who don't appear on-screen) breath an atmosphere that is definitely ''not'' M-class. So much for the carpets.


Added DiffLines:

* StealthPun: On the term "probable cause"--nobody expected that Garak would have cause to blow up his own shop. Or that Enabran Tain would be involved.

* ShoutOut/ToShakespeare: The episode opens with Garak and Bashir discussing ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'', with Garak taking umbrage that a great military leader could not recognize an assassination plot right under his nose. Serves as a bit of {{Foreshadowing}} for the twist in the next episode.
